Beware of capitalization of highlighted search results
Authored by: mesch on Aug 31, '03 10:07:36AM
I found this hint using a search for "plain", "text" and "mail", like so: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20030711201917175&query=plain+text+mail. On the result page, the search words are highlighted regardless of their case. However, the highlighted words are capitalized as in the search query, not as they appear originally. Thus, on the search results page, the salient line of the hint reads defaults write com.apple.mail Preferplaintext -bool TRUE, which wouldn't work because of case sensitivity of parameter names.
